Luke Vincenzo Frechette
May 22, 1998 - May 31, 2002

Our Story

Luke was our vibrant and charming son who touched many lives. We watched him overcome his early physical limitations and develop into a smart and engaging young boy. At age four he developed a rare pediatric cancer. Despite great medical care and abounding love from dad and mom, three older siblings, and a huge army of extended family and friends, Luke died in May 2002.

We have established “Lukie’s SOUL Foundation” as an enthusiastic celebration and memory of Luke, and for all children who have lost their struggle with undeserved childhood illnesses.

Our goal is to raise funds to support pediatric care in CNY. Our vision began with funding the education classroom in the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital, serving a 17-county area, including more than 450,000 children.

What does Lukie's S.O.U.L have in store for the FUTURE?

The future of Lukie's S.O.U.L Foundation will consist of raising funds for an infant infusion room in the (soon to be built) Upstate Cancer Center. The purpose of this room is for pediatric chemotherapy infusions during cancer treatments. The cost of this type of room is around $150,000, so we are well on our way in raising this money. Thank you for your continued support!
